Okay, time for some truth. I am NOT a morning person. I never have been, I never will be. Well, there was that one time when I was like 3, but since then- nope, nada, not gonna happen. It doesn't matter what time I go to bed, I will still wake up looking like an episode of the Walking Dead. (I've actually never watched this show, so I'm just guessing. I really have no idea.) Such was the case this morning. My husband came down and asked me to get up and help with the kids.... MMMuuuuuggggghhhhhhh. Yeah, that's me... zombie-morning Andrea.
I love my husband, but his morning wake-up tactics for trying to get me out bed suck. If he can't do it, send down the kids. There's nothing like bouncy, energized, screaming kids to wake you up. Alright, alright... so they were just talking. But it hurt my body, and I hadn't had any coffee yet.
This particular morning my kids were playing "Bunny Rescue". See yesterday's post for a full understanding. Honey was playing as Sunflower, a cute little lop-eared bunny with splay-leg. That means that her front legs don't sit normally, they're separated. #BunnyEducation While B-Man was playing as my sweet, adorable Little Bo Peep. Hippity-hop into my room they came, Honey nudging my head and B-Man jumping everywhere. "We just want you to know that we want to adopt Little Bo Peep", B-Man said, "we talked it over." Bless them for realizing that Bo and I had bonded.
Even though I'm not a morning person and I can be quite cranky BC (before coffee) my kids showed me this morning the lessons they are taking away from visiting Blackjack's Rabbit Rescue. Like Honey, who's showing compassion for the bunny that's slightly different from the other ones. Maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree here, but it's just neat to see how they are interacting with each bunny and carrying life lessons away with them as well. Sometimes parenting can be so awesome... yes, even first thing in the morning.
You know the saying, the grass is always greener on the other side? This is my attempt to find greener grass right where I am in my life.
BTW - I'm the one on the right, just in case you didn't already know that.
